Praise

“A moving, honest, and hopeful story.” — Kirkus, starred review

"Woodson maintains tension throughout, making it abundantly clear how easy it is to succumb to meth and how difficult it is to recover from it." — Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This powerful, stripped-down novel chronicles a girl’s journey from popular cheerleader to homeless meth user to recovering addict…An outstanding novel that succeeds on every level." — School Library Journal, starred review

"Woodson takes us on the dark journey of addiction, mimicking the slow, hazy spell of drug use with the lull of her poetic prose. . . . Laurel’s descent is brutally honest. . . . An intimate and compelling story of survival." — The Horn Book

"As accurate as it is heartbreaking; readers will be deeply moved . . . they’ll sympathize with [Laurel’s] desire to find some way to feel better. . . . Readers looking to understand the attraction of a destructive substance will get a glimmer of understanding." — The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

"Will not disappoint readers. . . . Ends on a hopeful note: perhaps it is possible to write pain ‘into the past and leave some of it there,’ and reimagine a future." — Booklist

“Powerful.”
